Create an Autumn Garden
To create the perfect autumn garden you need to focus on foliage colour.
Things like Liquidambar styraciflua (sweet gum) and Euonymus alatus (winged spindle tree) come to life at this time of year with stunning foliage.
Berries are also great for colour and wildlife, especially if you aren't a fan of bare branches. Callicarpa (Beauty berry) has eye catching iridescent purple berries, good enough to stop anyone in their tracks.
Pyracantha (Firethorn) is a pretty shrub that provides colour all year round. The best time to plant is autumn/winter.
